5 Yellowstone Inspired Designs

We took a little jaunt down to Yellowstone last weekend and it was, as usual, breathtaking. It got me thinking about some of my favorite icons of Yellowstone… geysers (duh), buffalo, The Old Faithful Inn. Naturally a few vintage designs made the cut, but I was also happy to track down a few fresh pieces from one of our favorite neighborhood getaways.

Neon Rainbow

Growing up in Livingston Montana I have a special appreciation for all things neon. The signs not only beckon to weary travelers and eager bar-goes, but they scream to be photographed, painted, and admired. So, for our viewing pleasure some nouveau neon as well as a touch of the old fashioned 70′s styled stuff (my personal favorite).

Finally, no ode to neon would be complete without the musical stylings of Mr. Alan Jackson.

Music Monday – Kiesza

Given the amount I play this tune, I’m well on the way to ruining it for myself. Until then I will dance and my guess is… you will too.

Now, if I lived in opposite world (which compared to Brooklyn NY, I think I probably do) I’d set up a Kiesza impersonator club and start each day with a faux hawk and acid wash. Alas, until that day arrives, my 90′s loving heart, will do the next best thing and try and capture a little Kiesza style right here on the internet.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to running man my way through the next load of laundry.
